RERA Has Brought Transparency To The Industry

RERA-post

The real estate industry has unfortunately always been plagued by accusations of non-transparency. However, with the introduction of RERA, a new era has been ushered in and now transparency has become an integral part of every project.

RERA as an initiative is taking up various grudges and address important issues like delays in projects, unfair pricing, quality of construction, title among other things. In fact, the biggest issue faced by buyers is the delays in projects. With RERA coming into effect, the transparency has also come into play and the buyers will be sure that there won’t be any infinite delays.

With RERA coming into effect, buyers have more clarity. The developers are required to keep the buyers informed about everything, including their other ongoing projects too. It also requires the real estate developer to maintain a separate escrow account for each of the announced projects. This escrow account has to hold 70 per cent of the money taken from the buyers and investors and buyers. This money in turn is only to be used for the construction of the project and buying the land.

RERA asks the builders to submit the original approved plans for all their ongoing projects, along with all the alterations that are done later on.

Coming to the quality of construction, any issue regarding the same as highlighted by buyers, has to be rectified by the developer as soon as possible.

If the developer is not able to deliver according to the agreed deadline, they are required to return the entire money to the buyers and in case the buyer still wants the property; the developer will have to pay monthly interest till the time the delivery is made.

RERA is truly a boon for the buyers and a wake-up call for the entire industry.

With The Antriksh Group’s RERA approved projects, you are sure to experience complete transparency. Because, for us the customer’s satisfaction is of the utmost importance.

Customer Service: Your Primary Right!

customer-service

Often, when you go ahead to invest in a real estate project, all you are looking forward to is the very obvious things; like the developer’s name and reputation, the pricing and the location. However, one very important thing that you need to focus on is the customer service that the developers offer.

It should be the primary driving force behind your decisions.

So now what do we mean by customer service. Well, in an ideal situation the perfect customer service refers to the treatment given by the developer to every single buyer.

At the first meeting itself, you should be given a treatment akin to someone, who has already made the purchase. The sales person should offer you all the right info in a completely transparent manner. He or she should answer all your questions, without holding back any information.

Secondly, once you have paid up the real test of the customer service starts. You have to be kept in the loop, regarding the development in the projects. Often in such cases the dodgy developers and their non-reliable teams start to avoid the customers.

Always ask for everything you need and judge the developer on that criteria. Do some research with the past customers to know their experience. All the arrangements and offers in the world can’t make up for the lack of a good customer service.

It is your basic right to be treated well and you should never take it lightly. As a customer you are supposed to be given the prime importance, without any excuses.

At The Antriksh Group, we work closely with our customers to keep them completely satisfied; the perfect way. For us a smiling customer is the biggest achievement.

A Look At Three Types Of Home Loans

home-loanx

Here is a cursory look at some of the popular types of home loans. It is just an introduction and is not a definitive guide.

  • Land Purchase Loans

Land purchase loans are meant to help the applicant buy a plot of land, on which the applicant can then construct his house. Usually, the banks offer up to 85 percent of the original price of the land. These loans are provided to the applicants, both for residential and investment purposes. These loans are provided by many leading banks and can be availed easily.

  • Home Purchase Loans

These are the most commonly available, hence the most popular home loan variants. These loans are provided to the applicant to help him or her buy a new residential property or an old house, from its previous owners. Usually, in this type of loan the finance provided is up to 85 percent of the market value of the respective house.

Such loans are usually offered on fixed interest rates or on the floating interest rates. Sometimes they are also offered as hybrid loans.

This type of loan is also provided by all the banking institutions and housing finance companies.

  • Home Construction Loans

These loans are offered to those individuals who want to construct a house, rather than buying an already existing one.

The process of loan application and its approval is different for these types of loans as opposed to the commonly available housing loans.

One condition is the plot of land on which the house is to be constructed should have been bought within a year of the application, for the cost of the land to be included for the purpose of calculating the total price of the house. If the plot has been purchased more than a year ago, this clause is not applicable.

In this type of loan, the total amount is disbursed at one go or is done in several installments, depending on the stages of construction.
